The pressure is on both of these and neither would have expected it to be. They both suffered 2-1 defeats in their opening group stage fixtures, albeit under very different circumstances. So the winner of this one will keep their qualification hopes alive while the loser will be taking an early bow from the tournament. It will be an upset as these were the two favourites to make it out of Group H.

The 2-1 loss to Senegal was a bitter pill to swallow for Poland as they had been on top for most of the game and calling the play. However, they were lacking one vital component at the end of the day and that was a supply line to Robert Lewandowski. With the big man pretty much marketed out of the game, Poland were left wanting and they couldn’t find a solution. They will need to be better in the final third to make an impression here and the result leaves Poland with a W2 D1 L1 record in their last four played. This is a big battle for survival not against Colombia and there is no margin for error. A draw would just about keep them in with a chance heading to the final round of matches.

Robert Lewandowski is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at 7/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.) and will take some backing still because of his track record at international level. Poland are on a four-match scoring streak, totalling ten goals so they know where the goal is, but it wouldn’t’ happen up front for them against Senegal. Because Poland’s defence is shaky at the best of times both teams to score at bet365 for 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.) is one of our leading options for Poland v Colombia betting tips. Poland finished their World Cup qualifiers in a very strong run of form, but have managed two wins in their last seven games since then.

Colombia News and Form

Colombia looked a bit of a risk to back heading into the World Cup and were never going to be at ease in this group. However, seeing them lose their opener to Japan was a shock as that was their easiest game of the group on paper. Things step up in difficulty know for sure. Colombia had a man sent off in the third minute of their game against Japan, with Japan converting the penalty for that offence. Even though Colombia equalised from a free kick before halftime, the South American’s couldn’t hold out in the end. Naturally, they did a lot of chasing in the game which may have taken an edge off of then for this challenge.

The loss in that game made Colombia the first ever South American side to lose to an Asian side in the history of the World Cup. Somehow they are going to have to shake that off for this huge challenge ahead. However, they haven’t been in great form with just two victories in their last ten games and they are lacking a bit of conviction up front. They have produced one goal only in their last three games. There should be goals in this but still tight at the same time so in the bet365 correct score market, there is good 12/1 odds on a Poland 2/1 result* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.). Why that scoreline? Colombia’s last three defeats have all been by that very scoreline.
